Have you ever reached airport early? Or waited for too long at the airport, maybe due to flight delay or a layover? The worst part of this wait is when you are surrounded by a huge crowd and not finding any peace, anywhere? Wanted to spend some alone and peaceful time at the airport but can’t! How irritate is this? Right?
In this situation, I think we should thank our airport authority for providing the passenger with a peaceful area called a lounge. This is a place for people who want to spend time in tranquility, away from all crowds. BUT! Usually, only first-class flyers can use these lounges. Strange, then what will economy passengers do? How will they get an access to these lounges without a first-class flight ticket? Not to worry, I have some brilliant options for you to get an access to these lounges without first-class flight ticket. Let’s read, get to know about those options more.
1) Platinum card of American Express:
For prime advantages, passengers need to focus on the American Express Platinum card. It sets you back $450, yet one of its key advantages is that, at no additional cost, you can get an access to 1000 VIP airport lounges around the world.
Once register, you get a supplementary membership to the Priority Pass airport lounges.
